Sweet Sixteen sillouette

Hello everyone, a beautiful morning has developed into a dull afternoon, looking like rain, at least our very strong wind has slowed today.  Hubby is cleaning the car, so thought I would come and show you my latest card.

I had a request from a friend for a card to send to the USA for a 16 year old "grown up, sophisticated clever girl", this meant no embellishments due to the postal charges.  I had a  few things in mind then was told it should be pinky! So I had a look through my massive amount of images and papers and put this together, I layered it all digitally, it's Silhouette by NumbBumm a fab kit.  I cut out the centre circle which is an element from moonlight oasis designs by jmdt. and the sentiment and added them to the front, not raised, again because of postage charges., I added some pink bling, ribbon from Fantastic Ribbons and cut out her name in black. I'm glad to say my friend was pleased, just hope the girl is :) She even said that the silhouette looks like the girl who's birthday it is, which is uncanny, but there, it is coming up to Halloween. LOL

EDITED 27/10/12 I have been asked for a link for the kit at NumbBumm it starts  HERE

I'll be putting this into the following challenges
